What are the top cities in China that offer train routes to Tibet?

By providing information on the length of time and cost of train travel from various cities in China to Tibet, it becomes apparent that three towns offer an ideal duration for a train ride to Tibet.

Xining is considered the top city in China for taking a train into Tibet due to its optimal travel time. A daily train is available from Xining to Tibet, and I have experienced this train ride to be quite comfortable. The train provides excellent air conditioning and large windows to appreciate the stunning natural scenery throughout the journey.

The second perfect city to take the train to Tibet is Lanzhou. The duration is not too long, and neither is it too short. Sometimes, Travelers can't get a train ticket from Xining to Lhasa because of the busy season; another option is to take the train from Lanzhou since these two cities are very close.

Some of our clients enjoyed the train journey from Xian to Lhasa due to its shorter duration than trips from Beijing or Shanghai. In addition, travelers can explore the captivating attractions in Xian before embarking on their train ride to Tibet.

What is the process for purchasing train tickets?

It can be challenging to purchase train tickets on your own, so we offer assistance in buying train tickets with a service fee of approximately 300 RMB per ticket.

During peak season, securing soft sleeper tickets can be particularly difficult, so Tibet Travelers suggests that travelers consider a backup plan of a hard sleeper or flight to Tibet. We will make every effort to obtain train tickets for our travelers.

If you're planning a trip to Tibet and need some free information or want to book a tour, don't hesitate to contact us at Tibet Travelers! Email us at info@tibettravelers.com, and we'll gladly assist you in any way we can. We look forward to hearing from you!
